In Anatolia 25 years ago, twelve idealist teachers left their home country to take their teaching skills to countries with poor education. ‘Selam’ tells the story of three of these people, Harun, Zehra and Adem. Harun goes to Senegal and Zehra to war-torn Afghanistan, whilst Adem finds himself in Boznia Herzegovnia, leaving his pregnant wife behind in Turkey.
When the director Levent Demirkale decided to make this film, he found himself facing some of the same problems they had faced 25 years before, especially in Afghanistan where the continuing war made it hard to even find actors or locations to shoot safely.
